Using T-SQL:

I know the LOGIN NAME of a user. How can I find the USER NAME that is associated with the login name for a particular database?

Thanks

check out the master.sys.syslogins sid column vs the databases.sys.sysusers sid column ...

angelIII,

Thanks for your help. I am just trying to drop a user's login and database user. Since I know the Login Name I can drop the login easily but I don't see a T-SQL command to drop a user from a database using the Login Name or SID. How would I do this? Do I have to directly access tables in the master database?

Thanks again,
Bob

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Sorry for being slow but I still don't follow.

e.g. Say login name is [mydomain\bsmith] and my user name is [bob]

If I only know the login name how can I find the user name? DROP USER requires the user name.

Thanks
Bob

select l.name login_name, u.name user_name
from master.sys.syslogins l
join reportserver.sys.sysusers u
  on u.sid = l.sid
where l.name = 'mydomain\bsmith'
